    Re: Mel Lewis

    I would talk to Mel when he came to Buddy's club.

    If memory serves, they only played on Mondays at the Vanguard.

    Re: Worlds fastest drummer

    I do wonder if a "world of possibilities" might include a Playboy, an outhouse, and a possible membership in the Vienna Boys Choir.

    The drum's are: BD 24"x14", 12"x9", 13"x10", 14"x10", 14"x15", and 16"x16".

    The up toms are as close to what they are on my Ludwigs.

    Story goes that Deems billed himself as the world's fastest drummer (I saw that in Downbeat years ago) Buddy walked into a club that Deems was playing at, hung around for several minutes, and Deems...

    Can't say as I have, but it has to be better than a corn cob and an outhouse.

    Might as well be able to multi-task while you are playing, and in case of emergency, you won't have far to go.

    I watch her drumming more than any other drummer out there.

    She's twice as good as a lot of drummers that have been playing twice as long as she has.

    Re: Max Roach

    I saw Max Roach when he was with Abbey Lincoln and when he played with Miles Davis. 1 of them was at the old Birdland before it shut down.

    I still have my totally worn out LP, Rich vs Roach.

    I agree with everything that Ricky and Brian said (wrote). Zack, you have to be more specific. J/K (maybe)
